WALKS BETWEEN CLASSES 





Where you, the students, have met and ex- 
changed your ideas, your hopes, your dreams 
— to you and to all the other memories that 
made the time spent at the Mount "the best 
years of our lives," we dedicate this book.

June, 1954 
Dear Graduates, 

You, the members of the class of 1954, are uniquely privileged to be 
graduated from a college dedicated to the Mother of God in a year proclaimed 
by our Holy Father, Pius XII, the Marian Year. 

In his encyclical — Fulgens Corona Gloriae — his Holiness states that 
the centenary of the Immaculate Conception should stimulate Christians to 
conform their lives to that of Mary, and to place their trust in "Our Powerful 
Mother. " 

And so today, my dear seniors, I can think of no fitter recommendation 
for graduates of Mount St. Mary's than to say to each one of you: Let your 
lives reflect Mary; place yourself and your whole future under the patronage 
of this loving mother. 

During your college years you have prepared yourselves for a special 
vocation. If your choice be marriage, the special instruction you have 
received has convinced you that a Catholic college alumna, taking Mary as her 
examplar of the true wife and mother, must in turn convince the rest of the 
world of the unity and indissolubility of marriage. 

If our Lord has favored you with a religious vocation, you will serve 
Him through Mary in your work of teaching, nursing, care of the poor and 
the unfortunate. 

If a career appeals to you, again I refer you to Fulgens Corona in 
which our Holy Father begs that prayers be offered for the youth of 
today that they take an active part in the affairs of the world and spread 
religious truths to the law-making bodies ; that they help bring back 
Christ to the world through Mary. 

Live up, dear graduates, to the high spiritual and intellectual ideals 
Mount St. Mary's College has tried to instill in your hearts and minds. 
You are equipped to "Christianize the Christians and to Marianize every 
one. " 

Sister Agnes Marie

TO THE GRADUATES OF 1954: 

As your days as students here at the Mount are drawing to a close, 
our hearts are filled with high hopes and lofty aspirations for each 
one of you. For four years you have been preparing yourselves to 
take your places in a world that needs Christian principles and Christian 
ideals. The theology that has been so important a part of your edu- 
cation, and the philosophy that you have learned here at Mount St. Mary's 
College have enabled you, we trust, to go forth possessing wisdom and 
values that measure happiness and success not in terms of material 
standards but in the light of eternal verities. 

Your graduation coming as it does in the Marian year should 
serve to emphasize for you the importance of realizing in your lives 
the ideals of true Christian womanhood embodied in her who is "our 
life, our sweetness and our hope." 

To you the Church has given much and from you she has the 
right to expect much. To you the Church looks for leadership in the 
numerous fields that are the special sphere of women. From you must 
come her religious, her mothers, her teachers, her writers, her social 
workers, her medical technicians, her nurses. . . . Bring to these voca- 
tions the Christian social principles that you have learned here at the 
Mount. As graduates of a Catholic college, as true daughters of your 
Alma Mater, "make all men feel the attraction of Christian goodness," 
as Our Holy Father says of Our Lady in the Marian year prayer. 

Yours is a great apostolate, yours is a great responsibility 
but yours, too, is a glorious opportunity of bringing souls to know 
and to love God. 

As we bid you a prayerful farewell, we trust that you will 
be true to the work that has been confided to you. We follow you with 
our prayers. We ask Christ and His Blessed Mother to be with you 
always in all that you do. In your successes and in your failures 
turn to them for courage and help. Be true always to your Alma Mater 
and let her motto be your guide: DEUS ILLUMNATIO MEA. If God be 
your light, you will find true happiness 

That Christ keep you always near to Himself and that His 
Blessed Mother be your never-failing help is the daily prayer of 



Your devoted, 
Sister Rose de Lima

CHAPLAIN'S MESSAGE 



June, 1954 



Dear Graduates, 

It is possible to look back 
over four years of college, 
to think dimly of stacks of 
books and piles of notes, to 
recall vaguely assignments by 
the score and examinations by 
the dozen, and then to realize 
with a sense of dismay that 
much of all that knowledge, 
steadily absorbed and periodi- 
cally disgorged, seems to have 
vanished. Little remains save 
bits and scraps of information, 
a word here, an idea there. The 
courses of your senior year 
may still be fresh in your mem- 
ories but already they are on 
their way to join the ghosts 

of the past. The dying echoes of "substance" and "accidents" mingle with 
a distant rumble of sines and cosines, and through a faint murmur of 
Dante and Shakespeare comes the weak protest of the bryozoa and the 
arthropods. Was it a dream? Where has time flown? What did I get out of 
it all? Of what use will it be to me? 




Reverend James O'Reilly 



If this is your thought and these your questions on the eve of grad- 
uation, then pause awhile. It is too soon yet to be arriving at conclu- 
sions and passing judgment. You have to wait and look back before you 
can make a fair estimate of the education you have received. What now 
seems to have been speculative, dull, unreal, impractical; what now 
appears to have been confusing, disordered, haphazard; what you think 
you never learned or have forgotten — under the impact of life and in the 
light of experience, will gain meaning and significance, will come to 
life, will fall into place. Then you will look back with quiet thankful- 
ness to God for the grace of these years. 

For you have received, be it ever so imperfectly, the treasures of 
Christian humanism. The thought of ancient Greece, the institutions 
of old Rome, the discoveries of modern science, the gems of literature 
and the treasures of art have been caught up in the net of Christian 
Faith and delivered into your keeping. So live that you may be less 
unworthy of this trust. May the Son of Mary find His delight in you 
always . 

Devotedly yours in Christ, 

Father O'Reilly.

SENIORS ... A DREAM 



With September came a rush of Senior activities — 
excessive use of Senior Privileges; flurry of work in 
departmental units; hibernation of student teachers; and 
the first senior night out, the reading of "John Brown's 
Body'\ October found Seniors relaxing at Anne Frances 
Russell's house for a party. 

St. Timothy's parish hall hosted the annual spaghetti 
dinner in November, and December rushed by with 
working, holidays, and an evening's stop at the ballet. 
Jeanette Gualano offered hospitality to "Night at the 
Mount" seniors who weeks later put on (to quote) "the 
best one yet"! !

Seniors gather together for their monthly Night Out 



COME TRUE 



Pat Perram Michelmore joined Barbara Bashe Robinson 
as two of the "first to go". Twenty-first birthdays were cele- 
brated at Helen McEachen's in February and St. Patrick 
toasted on March 17. In April Marion Reaume christened her 
new home with — not champagne — but seniors. 

May seemed busiest as Seniors said goodbye in oriental 
decor at "Sayonara"; looked proudly at the 30% of gradu- 
ates' engagement rings and at the other 70%'s smiling faces; 
splashed through the last night out at Jane Brander's; thanked 
Juniors gratefully for a wonderful Prom; recollected 
thoughts, aims, and desires as Baccalaureate arrived. June 
and graduation are synonymous, as are happy, fulfilled days 
and Mount Saint Mary's College.

SOPHOMORES 



After completing their green stage, Sophs were 
ready for the activities that fill the college year. 

In September they helped to haze freshmen 
during Red Week. In October they worked hard 
to make the Halloween Party a success. Sophs next 
sponsored "The Harvest Ball" for the benefit of 
the Fine Arts Building.

The highlight of the year came in February with 
the sophomore pre-lenten formal. Dances were not 
the only accomplishments. Sophomores worked on 
the St. Patrick's Day Breakfast and Father-Daugh- 
ter Night too. 

One of the last activities was for Sophomores 
only — a class party which brought friends together 
for an evening of fun, food and entertainment. 

With this year successfully closed, Sophs are 
looking toward the next, to attain the rank of 
upper classmen.

Capped with the traditional black and white dink, the 
freshman class of '57 started a full and exciting year. As 
"loyal comrades" to big sisters frosh faithfully lugged gunny 
sacks to classes during Green Week. A display of talent was 
shown in the Frosh Frolics and again in the get-acquainted 
party. 

Other activities were: compiling the roster, the use of 
parliamentary procedure in class meetings, introduction of 
new second semester students, reading and discussion of the 
college constitution, a pre-Lenten party, and a joint picnic 
with Loyola Freshmen. Guided by their patron, Saint Maria

GOVERNMENT 



The Student Council, under the effective leadership of Rosemary Czuleger, carried out many plans 
and directed numerous activities this year. Coordinated calendars, Orientation program, and planned 
general assemblies, were just a few of the Council's projects. The Coordinating Council functioned 
smoothly and many conflicts were avoided. An assembly period given over to club meetings was a wel- 
come innovation. The Council also saw that the nurses became more a part of Mount life, and that elec- 
tions were more orderly. The student Council was just that this year — the active organ of the Student Body.

The View, and NFCCS active members. Such activities have distributed commission litera- 
ture, and served the Sodality, SWES, YCS, and other clubs; promoted the European Marian 
tours, regional activities, and Mary's Hour.

PARNASSIANS 



Parnassians, the campus English club, stimulates among English majors a more active 
interest in the field of literature ■ — past and contemporary. To achieve this objective the 
club promoted field trips and attendance at lectures by noted writers. 

During second semester, members visited the Huntington Library and Exhibits in San 
Marino. Also on the busy schedule during the year were several movies based on great 
contributions to English literature, one of which was Julius Caesar. Members also con- 
tributed to The View and Inter Nos, and won top honors in the Cabrini literary contest as 
well as first place in the Atlantic creative writing contest. 

Participating in Co-ordinating Council activities Parnassians joined efforts with Eu- 
sebians and produced the effective "House of Horror" for Night at the Mount.

social welfare. Its purpose is to prepare a Christian girl for a place 
in the home, the parish, and the community. 

SWES activities, in progress before the opening of fall semester, 
began with a spaghetti dinner at Barbara Dobrott's home. Early in 
October old members welcomed new students to the Mount and to 
SWES at a formal tea. 

The Settlement Committee joined WRA to entertain the children 
at Pacoima with a Halloween Party, followed by a jointly sponsored 
SWES. and Sodality Christmas Party. 

At the close of the fall semester, alumnae members were invited 
to an informal party at which they answered questions of under- 
graduates about their present positions. 

The second semester found SWES presenting stimulating and 
informative programs for Intercultural Week, Family Week, and 
U.N. Week. 

An installation banquet closed a successful year.

Mount. 

Yearly activities for the club began with a welcome tea for all new mem- 
bers in October. In November the club sponsored an evening at the movies 
where more than 100 girls saw Julius Caesar. Since Eusebians is mainly a 
study club, discussions are held at least once a month. Books such as Daniel 
Sargent's Our Land and Our Lady, Frank Sheed's Communism and Man, 
and the collected work entitled Communism and Christians, were used this 
year. In December a panel discussed the Bill of Rights for the student body 
and the annual Christmas Party entertained a group of children. 

The club ran a booth for Night at the Mount. February saw members 
wearing Eusebian pins for the first time in the history of the club. April 
and the alumnae tea celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the organization. 
May ended the year with the annual banquet and installation of officers. 
The club is one of the three initial members of the newly organized Inter- 
collegiate Historical Association for promoting the Catholic view of world 
and domestic affairs.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB 



The Home Economics Club aims to create an understand- 
ing of Christian living in community and family life, and 
to stimulate action toward this goal among students at Mount 
Saint Mary's. One of the most active and prestige-winning 
clubs on campus, the year started with an initiation tea for 
new members. Anne Park was elected publicity chairman of 
the college clubs, Southern section of the American Home 
Economics Association. At Christmas the club invited Im- 
maculate Heart College Home Economics Club to a party 
to stimulate interest in their newly organized club. They 
aided an Indian Mission Home Economics department by 
sending a subscription to a popular home economics maga- 
zine. 

During Family Week the club gave a mother-baby party, 
with alumnae mothers and their children as guests. In May 
they highlighted a busy year with the eighth annual fashion 
show and tea, in which students modeled fashions they had 
made themselves. Thus members created specific and fruitful 
programs to put into very real practice their club aims.

TRI WW 



Tri Rho, whose name denotes the three R's of education, has as its aim the furthering 
of Catholic ideals of education and the developing of informed minds and professional 
attitudes. The club is an active chapter of the California Student Teachers' Association 
with a co-chairmanship in the state-wide Ethics Committee. Members attended a Leader- 
ship Conference at Asilomar and a workshop at San Diego State College. Holding a seat 
on the Executive Council, Tri-Rho took part in meetings in Los Angeles and Monterey. 

This year's activities included a tea for new members, an educational film, panel dis- 
cussions, an annual Alumnae tea, the dart booth at Night at the Mount, and guest speakers 
including Mrs. Virginia Neal, a school supervisor, and a representative of a publishing 
company. Guided by Sister Hortensia, Tri Rho has had a fruitful and busy year.

MUSIC CLUB 



The Music Club opened the year with an informal swimming party in July. A tea with 
favorite records as the theme brought members together in September. Activity in various 
musical ensembles of the school was stressed, as was the Philharmonic Series. A chapter 
of the Music Educator's National Conference and a Philharmonic Forum Chapter were 
reorganized for the year. 

The dance band provided a musical background for the Drama department's presen- 
tation of Craig's Wife.. An Advent Pageant combining the Choral Group and the Drama 
department pioneered college television on KTLA, Channel 5. The combined Symphonette 
and Choral Group presented Sr. Celestine's musical setting of The Hound of Heaven for 
the Aquinian Guild.

Projects included hostessing of International 
Students, dressing dolls and knitting sweaters for 
underprivileged children. A vigorous Blood Drive 
was also undertaken by the active members. 

Display set-ups and assemblies on water safety, 
civil defense, and blood cultivated the interest of 
the campus. 



THE MOUNT HANDBOOK 



The Mount Handbook again became the ready 
reference of every Mount student. School calen- 
dar; student body; Sodality, and club officers; all 
organizations; and the Alma Mater are just a few 
of the topics covered in the handbook.

THE VIEW 



The View, the college newspaper, this year smaller 
in size but not in quality, kept Mount students up to 
date on all the activities of the college. 

The View, published tri-weekly except during exams, 
is a member of the Associated Collegiate Press and the 
Catholic School Press Association. 

Last minute rush, click of typewriters, deadlines, 
and proofreading were all a part of the program; 
however, The View went to pres on time and then to 
the eager hands of Mount students.

Kappa Delta Chi has been an active sorority at Mount 
Saint Mary's since 1930. Its main ideal is the establishment 
of true friendship and sisterhood among members, as well 
as alumnae. 

The activities of the sorority this year were many. Early 
in October, Kappas presented a Fashion Tea at Bullock's 
Westwood, with proceeds going to the Fine Arts building. 
Members planned the annual rush tea, the informal party 
with its traditional Western theme, and the formal acceptance 
dinner. Later in the year came the formal presentation of

As an organization of young Catholic women, Kappa 
Delta Chi attended Holy Mass and received Communion in 
a body on several occasions. 

Christmas boxes for underprivileged children were pre- 
pared at the annual Christmas Party. Thus working, praying, 
and having fun together gave Kappa Delta Chi a fruitful 
and enjoyable year.
